According to the page linked to above:

"Academic research libraries have contributed to this endeavour by purchasing 
access on a one-
time basis. Access is perpetual and there are no annual maintenance fees."

So if you happen to access the website from one of those institutions, you'll 
get free access.

I wonder if an individual start up their own library based in the Cayman 
Islands? :-)
